How is it made?
In the butter saute your mirepoix (onions, carrots, celery) at medium-low temperature until slightly softened (8 minutes), then sprinkle the flour over it and stir, cooking at low temperature for 5 minutes.
Turn off the heat and allow contents to cool slightly. Add your spices then stir in 1 cup of milk, followed by a cup of cream and simmer for 20 minutes.
Add your crab meat and a big splash of sherry.
